This article introduces you to using Red Hat 3scale API Management for OpenID Connect (OIDC) integration and compliance. Our goal is to secure an API in 3scale API Management using JSON Web Token (JWT), OIDC, and the Oauth2 Authorization Framework. We will set up the integration using Okta as our third-party OpenID Connect identity provider. An important part of the demonstration is establishing the 3scale API Management gateway’s connection with Okta.

But you don’t want to develop all of this yourself, nor should you.

In this post, I will provide a walk through of how to set up Identity Brokering on an RH-SSO server.
Red Hat Single Sign-On (RH-SSO) provides Web single sign-on and identity federation based on SAML 2.0, OpenID Connect and OAuth 2.0 specifications.
For this tutorial, you will need:
- An RH-SSO Instance.
- A Web/Mobile Application with an OpenID Connect adapter.
- An OpenID Connect Provider Server (Such as Keycloak) to be used as the 3rd Party Identity Provider.
